If you’re looking for a more affordable way to lease a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) through the Motability Scheme then a Nearly New WAV might be the right vehicle for you.

What's a Nearly New WAV?

Our Nearly New WAVs are WAVs that have been returned to us from another customer after less than three years. We want to ensure that we can offer you guaranteed quality, so all Nearly New WAVs are carefully checked by a Motability approved supplier, before we offer them an alternative option.

Is a Nearly New WAV the right option?

Yes if:

  • One is available that suits your needs
  • You need to get a WAV quickly
  • You need a WAV but would like a lower Advance Payment
  • You’d like a shorter lease length.

However, there are a few things to consider:

  • Not all new WAVs are available as Nearly New
  • There is a limited amount of stock available
  • While each Nearly New WAV is quality checked, you should expect some wear consistent with its age

Ensuring you have the right vehicle to suit your needs is really important, as it will be a big part of your life for the next three years.

What's the difference between a new WAV and a Nearly New WAV?

Nearly New WAVs have the same worry free leasing package as our new vehicle. There are a couple of key differences and these are highlighted in the table below.
